Richard Scopetto is an icon at Wethersfield High School. Every time you hear his infamous “How you doin’?” line, you know it's Sco walking down the hall. He is loved by all the students and staff. Sco is one of the five gym teachers at WHS. He has the longest tenure of a whopping total of 45 years and coaching for over 20 years.
Sco says what makes him different than other teachers here is “I’m older.” He tries to be the same person everyday or as he would say “I'm never too cold. I'm never too hot. I’m lukewarm.” Sco always tells himself that he won’t try and have a good day but that he will have a good day everyday. He loves kids but says that some don’t listen and expect to be told more than once or twice to do things. Sco isn't fond of electronics, he says they can be useful but teenagers misuse them.
One of Scos biggest struggles is time management. He has to get all his work done during the day so he can have time after school to coach. Where as other teachers can assign homework, he can't because it's all done at school. He always is coaching whether it is during the soccer season or during girls tennis in the spring. He loves coaching and teaching kids. He says they are the “best people to work with.”
